Janet T. Byrd, 100, of Palatka, has gone to be the Lord and is now at peace and rest. A native of Chicago, Illinois, she resided in Putnam County since 2006 coming from McClellanville, South Carolina. Janet was a homemaker and was a member of the First Baptist Church of Palatka. In her leisure time, she enjoyed traveling and fishing, but cherished most the times she invested as a homemaker to her family. She had a twinkle in her eye and her beautiful smile brought a smile to everyone else. She will also be remembered for always saying “I love you”.
She was preceded in death by her first husband, William T. Byrd and her 2nd husband Edward Hattaway.
Janet is survived by a son, Trevor Byrd (Becky) of Satsuma, 2 grandchildren, 2 great-grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.
